Pan Barnet Data Sharing Agreement

Barnet CCG is investing in a pilot scheme that will allow patients to be seen on Friday evening, Saturday, Sunday and Monday evening. This means there will be more opportunity for you to see a local GP out of hours at another local GP practice.

In order to participate in this, we are part of a data sharing agreement with other local practices in Barnet.

If you have an appointment booked as part of this pilot your consent will be required for the GP to view your practice notes. This will be requested during your consultation.

Should you not wish for your notes to be part of this data sharing agreement please inform our Practice Manager (Mr Riz Husain) in writing.

Replacement Blood Forms

Please note that as of the 1st September 2015 we will be unable to provide free replacements for blood forms that have been lost, forgotten or misplaced.

If you require a copy of a blood form you were previously given a charge of 50p will apply per copy.

The 'Friends and Family' Test

We welcome feedback from our patients, so please complete the feedback form available here.

Sickness Certificates

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

Evidence that you are sick

Sickness CertificatesIf you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).

It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.

You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.

Statement of Fitness for Work - ’Fit Note'

The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
